I have decided that everything in my life is supporting me. I’ve made a decision. And because of that, everything gets interpreted through that filter, the sooner the better. Usually, it’s automatic. Sometimes it’s a little delayed. Sometimes I have to go the long way around. And eventually I recognize that there is in fact a gift in what happened. It turns out that it empowered me, often way beyond anything else that could have happened. So a decision gets to be made. And I
Today, we can take a step for up-leveling our gratitude quotient. In attempting to stay in gratitude, there will be roadblocks or activators.
You may get stuck in traffic. Somebody may say something that bothers you. Whatever it is, something you didn't want to happen -- will happen. These are activators.
We each have a personal belief about what those activators mean. We have a belief about whether it's good or bad. But, when we start to notice that we are feeling cons
Norman Vincent Peale once wrote about giving. It's been an inspiring quote to me for many years. I would like to share it with you today.
"When you discover the wonder of giving, you will wonder how you could have lived so long in any other way."
It is the key that opens the door to every good thing in your life. It opens the door to the good you have been seeking and gives life every new dimension. It gives you the feeling and the knowing that truly you live in an abun
Today I invite you to ask that still small voice within, “What would you have me be today? What would you have me be?” Then listen and a quality, a trait will come to mind.
When Frances of Assisi asked those questions, he heard that rather than being in hatred, let me be in love. Where there is injury let me bring pardon. Where there is doubt let me bring faith; despair let me bring hope. Where there is darkness let me bring light, and where there is sadness let me bring j
I once heard it said... a caterpillar can fly, but not as a caterpillar.
A caterpillar has to be willing to go through a metamorphosis. There are imaginal cells in the caterpillar that begin to activate the transformation of metamorphosis.
Now at first the caterpillar's memory of what the caterpillar is, or its immune system, fights those imaginal cells. Ultimately, because they are of a higher power, those imaginal cells take over and the caterpillar submits to the tra
Have you ever felt a little nostalgia like ‘oh this is an ending now’?
I am reminded of that line from one of my all-time favorite movies “The Sound of Music” ; when a door closes a window opens. But it's an art form to know how to turn our attention from the closed door and look at the open window.
Not only at the open window but through the open window into the possibility of what's next...
So in your life right now there are some doors that either are closing or h
Mathematics is a beautiful reminder of the law of polarity, which states that there cannot be a problem without the answer also being available. Built in to the problem itself is the very answer we are seeking. Too often people abandon the problem before finding their answer and miss the gift.
Einstein said, "it's not that I am so smart, it's just that I stay with the problems longer". Life has a funny way of persistently giving us just the right size problems in order to
